Giving Tuesday News & Notes from Cavalor

Happy Giving Tuesday! Whether or not you shopped ’til you dropped this weekend or not, consider using this day to support a charity important to you. If you’re looking for some equine related giving Tuesday options, consider the USEA Foundation. Thanks to an anonymous donor, each dollar given to the Roger Haller Fund for educating eventing officials will be matched, so your contribution can go twice as far.
